The Week Before Easter

Kevin Conneff with Máire Ní Chaoimh, Paul McGrattan, Johnny Norris and Derek Bell
Kevin Conneff, singer and bodhran player with The Chieftains, gives us a selection of songs and music from his extensive repertory. He learned these pieces on his musical travels throughout Ireland during a lifetime devoted to traditional music, and the record shows his solo side, a side that is normally overshadowed by his role as a Chieftain.
